My friend Genie (aka Palestine Rose) writes potent poetry and has the soul of an artist, and with great compassion and humanity, expresses all of her creations with grace and love. To know that such souls exist in the world, reignites my own compassion and hope for our world.

About jjhiii24
Way back in 1973, as a young man embarking on the journey of a lifetime, I experienced what Carl Jung described as “the eruption of unconscious contents,” which compelled me to seek the path I continue to pursue to this day. The path of discovery has led me through an astonishingly diverse range of explorations in philosophy, science, and religion, as well as the many compelling ideas in the literature and scriptures of the cultures of the world. There is, in my view, a compelling thread made up of components of each, that runs through the fabric of life. The nature and study of human consciousness has been a compelling subject for me for more than twenty years. I have spent a great deal of my time and energies trying to come to terms with my own very particular “inner experience” of life, and to somehow understand how the events and flow of my temporal life have directly been influenced by the workings within. Sharing what I have come to understand about my own “Inner Evolution,” has tasked my intellect and communications skills in a big way. I am only just beginning to feel confident enough in the results of my study and contemplation to express the many various aspects of what I have uncovered within myself. I am hopeful that my own subjective and personal experience of my own “human spirit” will resonate with others, and encourage them to explore their own.

    Thank you, my friend.
    Katie Melua is a soulful singer and poet. Her music has the power to heal and carry the soul to a place of grace, a grace found from facing the inner fragility which is needed to experience life in a deeper and profound way.

      It is a blessing to share friendship with you.

      Your willingness to feature another artist on your blog, and to express your appreciation for her ability to “carry the soul to a place of grace,” is a gift to your readers, and a reflection of your own profound experience of life, which you share in an equally “soulful” way.

      Your intuition that facing our “inner fragility” as a means to opening ourselves to a much deeper and profound experience of life, is reflected in many of your original works, and I think you sometimes underestimate the power of your own expressions, which issue forth from within you on a regular basis.

      Looking forward to sharing more of your expressions in the days to come….John H.
